I believe that pregnancy and the birth of a child is one of the most important and transformative experiences in one’s life. Parents who have a positive experience during the birth of their child have an easier time adjusting during their transition into parenthood. I believe that parents’ unique needs and desires should be acknowledged and respected. As your doula, I am committed to providing the individualized support that is right for you. She is an active member of Central Texas Doula Association, Central Texas Birth Network, and the Coalition for Improving Maternity Services.
I believe that parents deserve to have accurate information regarding pregnancy and childbirth so that they may make confident and wise decisions for themselves and their baby. As a doula, I encourage mothers to trust their bodies, their own instincts, and the birth process itself. Giving birth in a calm and nurturing environment allows the mother to labor confidently. If a birth partner is present, I am always aware of the emotional connection he or she has with the mother and I honor that connection. My presence in no way diminishes the significant and essential role of the birth partner. Instead, I support the partner so that he or she can participate at their own comfort level.
I am married and have two daughters. I trained and received my doula certification through DONA International. I also obtained certification as a breastfeeding educator with the Texas Department of Health. I am comfortable attending births in a variety of settings and working with parents from diverse backgrounds. I am an active member of Central Texas Doula Association, Central Texas Birth Network, and the Coalition for Improving Maternity Services.
